What Adil Baguirov doesn’t want you to see

It wasn’t enough to force him to resign from the Dayton Public School board by threatening a lawsuit to have him removed for non-residency.

It’s not been enough to show that he has ties to all kinds of people who have been involved in shady lobbying, and gotten a large amount of foreign cash delivered into one of his unreported shell companies.

It’s not enough to flat out call him out as committing voter fraud.

Or watching him do deals with the school board that he had no business being involved in because of conflicts of interest (the CareSource Deal and the Bus deal).

The guy keeps coming back to politics, and now wants to be your Montgomery county recorder.

Adil Baguirov's 5 twitter accounts

Only a sock puppet has 5 twitter accounts.

That’s the last thing you want to do for a guy with Russian ties (and not the kind you wear around your neck) and 5 twitter accounts.

Remember, the County Recorder has access to all the important data that might come in handy if you wanted to create things like, oh, sock puppet accounts, or fake voters, or false identities for foreign agents… (yes, I watched “The Americans”)

Here’s a full list of what the reorder does:

Your County Recorder:

– makes a complete, accurate and permanent record of every document pertaining to the conveyance and encumbrance of land within the county.

– maintains permanent land records, retains them in archival form, and makes them constantly accessible to the public.

– enforces more than 1000 sections of state law in the Ohio Revised Code pertaining to the duties of the Recorder’s office.

– takes great care to ensure that every document received is accurately filed, recorded and indexed.

– serves on the county’s RECORDS COMMISSION which authorizes the retention of county records and determines when or how these government records may be disposed.

– serves on the county’s AUTOMATIC DATA PROCESSING BOARD* to authorize any purchase, lease, or contract for data processing equipment for county offices.

– serves as secretary and chief administrator of the county’s MICROFILMING BOARD* to authorize any purchase, lease or contract for microfilming equipment in county offices and to oversee the operation of the county’s microfilming center and services.

– collects fees for documents filed in the Recorder’s office and pays these monies into the county’s general fund.

– maintains an accurate record of all monies appropriated to the Recorder’s office for its operation.

– performs all accounting functions necessary to the operation of the Recorder’s office including preparation of annual budgets and reports, vouchers, purchase orders, etc., and maintains all payroll records, sick and vacation leave records and other records pertaining to the Recorder’s staff.

– files annually an ethics report, inventory of office equipment, affirmative action report, depository agreements for funds and every other report as required by law.

– notifies boards of county commissioners and township trustees annually of their duty to file zoning resolutions, maps and amendments.

*Optional boards established by the County Commissioners in accordance with state law.

So with all that in mind, here’s what Dr. B. from Moscow doesn’t want you to see, he’s hired a law firm to help cleanse the Internet of certain images. Hurry and go look and download before they disappear:

And, if you want to read more people questioning our International Man of Mystery- go take a look at this article by Patrick Simpson- who goes as far as to hint at what else Dr. B was doing while getting his PhD in Moscow:

Weldon and Giuliani are not Baguirov’s only connections to the #TrumpRussia scandal.

Baguirov also went to Trump University, and claimed “I’ve attended a lot of these seminars and Trump’s was above average,” says Adil Bagirov, an energy consultant in Alexandria, Va. “It wasn’t the most effective, but I learned some things, and I’ve been very successful,” he says.

Why would Baguirov attend Trump University if he has a Ph.D from Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGiMO), a university notorious for being the recruiting ground for the FSB?

Adil’s only recent campaign finance report

You might also want to look at all his political donations he used to make when he was working for all the shady type lobbyists before he came to Dayton. Let’s look at who is funding him now?

Mostly himself, with a $90K loan, but a lot of his donors are from out of state.

Considering we showed how many things he failed to list on his Ohio Ethics Statement way back– and there has been no public accounting for the offshore money deposited into his Turbillion shell company, how anyone can trust anything that comes out of his mouth- or he turns in as a campaign finance report, is beyond comprehension.

Do us all a favor Dayton, and vote for Brandon McClain for County Recorder.

Our “International Man of Mystery” needs to go away.

The pride of Dayton wins again

Dayton Invincible Regulating Striders at Buck or Die 2018While WGI is happening right here in Dayton, a group of Dayton kids traveled to Atlanta to compete in “Buck or Die” which is a drill team competition.
I’ve written about the Dayton Invincible Regulating Striders before. Same story.

They went, they competed, they kicked butt.

They won “best performance overall” which means their scores beat out all the dance teams, step teams and drum lines in the competition. They won Division 4. They won best costumes.

They are now the back to back champs after winning in 2017 as well.

Congratulations to Michael McCorkle- the founder and director- and all the parents, and kids who make our city look good.

Who says you don’t see anything positive on esrati.com?


Together we did. RIP Jean Booker

There is no mention of Jean Booker on the worthless Dayton Public Schools website. Or of her passing.

Forgetting those who came before, and what they did is a cardinal sin. It should not be my job to let the community know that a person who did as much for education in Dayton has passed- that job used to be done by the newspaper, but, well, calling it either “news” or a “paper” now is almost quaint.

I saw the one line obit in the paper last week. I, knew right away that a giant in DPS history had left the proverbial building. I waited. Nothing in the paper, nothing on the DPS site. Shameful.

I remember Ms. Booker as a school board member. Others remember her for her years as a teacher and administrator. I’m not qualified to write her obit- but I did find a few things online via Facebook that should tell you more than enough about her character and commitment to education in our community.

“BOOKER, Jean Daly Age 91-passed away on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Hospice of Dayton.” is not enough. That services will be arranged in the future is not important. What is important is that she knew education. Read this letter to graduates that she wrote back in 1981 as principal of Fairview HS.

Together, Jean, we did. Thank you for your public service. I would appreciate anyone sharing Jean Booker stories in the comments.

BOOKER (Daly), Jean Eleanor
91, passed away quietly March 3, 2018 at Hospice of Dayton.

She was born in Dayton October 31, 1926 to the late Nellie (Williams) and Clemence A.

Daly. One brother, Robert, preceded her in death. Survived by her loving son, Robert, of Indianapolis, devoted friend and loving companion, Geraldine (Gerry) Thompson, special friends Anna Robinson of Indianapolis, Kevin Furlow of Dayton and countless friends, including hundreds of her loving students. Jean was a graduate of Roosevelt High School (1944), Oberlin College (1948) and received her Master of Arts Degree from Miami University. Her career began at Edison and Grace A. Green, teaching elementary physical education, and in 1950 Jean moved to Roosevelt High School. Her years at Roosevelt were as a teacher (1950 – 1961), counselor (1961- 1963) and assistant principal (1963-1968). She then served at Fairview High School as assistant principal, acting principal and as appointed principal. With the closing of Fairview, Jean moved to Meadowdale, serving as principal until her retirement in 1985. Jean was a member of the Dayton Board of Education from 1988 to 1999 and served as its President for 3 years. Her many community awards and involvement include: Dayton Ten Top Women 1963, American Youth Foundation Trustee, and Wesley Center Steering Committee. Environmental concerns were paramount in Jean’s life; she enjoyed the beauty of nature. Watching wild birds in her back yard inspired her. Other experiences enriched her life, including traveling, hiking, walking at Englewood Dam, downhill skiing in her late 60’s and Grand Canyon white water rafting at 78. She was an active member and Elder of College Hill Presbyterian Church and sang in the church choir. Jean was a long-time supporter of the American Youth Foundation and afforded many students and College Hill youth the opportunity to attend its summer leadership conferences. Jean began her own 35-year AYF career as a Miniwanca camper in 1943. She served as a board member for many years until her retirement in 2010. At her retirement the AYF director summed up Jean’s years as “a guiding light to young people and one who was always concerned that the program challenge campers to ‘aspire nobly, adventure daringly, and serve humbly’.” Jean Daly Booker was a Christian servant, an advocate for justice and a blessing to us all. Jean, applying always her faith to human needs, donated her body to The Boonshoft School of Medicine, Wright State University. A Celebration of Life service will be Saturday, April 7, 2018, 2:00 p.m. at Shiloh Church, (5300 Philadelphia Drive, Dayton) Pastor Darryll Young, officiating.

The Dayton Daily 2/3rds news

The Dayton Daily News “broke” the story that my neighborhood investor/rehabber Beavercreek resident Theresa Gasper has declared as a Democratic Candidate for the Ohio 10th to face Mike Turner. They report that she and Rob Klepinger will face off in the primary. Rob has run twice- and captured about 37% of the vote, without spending $10K.

Totally missing from the story is Michael Milisits, a Riverside rep, who announced before either of them thought of it. A Union steward at CWA Local 4322, he’s been at this for a few months.Look him up.

Now, the question is if the Montgomery County Democratic Party can keep their boys in the back room screening committee out of the primary- other than to vet candidates- not endorse.

In other news, the Dayton Daily news, announces their new advertising tagline: “If it’s in Dayton, it’s news to us.”

The new SBA regional bigwig is a Dayton original

For those of you who read this blog, and watch my videos, you’ll probably remember the 20 minute ramble my friend from across the aisle- Rob Scott and I had about running to be a precinct captain last week: How to run for precinct captain for your party- the video

It quickly got over 1000 views in just a few days, and I’ve had more people come up to me and thank me for it than any video in a long time.

Regional SBA director Rob Scott knows how to share the christmas spirt

Confidence, is being able to wear this suit. Rob Scott is ready to be Santa Claus for small business.

Next time we sit down to talk about something, he’ll be the regional administrator for SBA’s Great Lakes Region (Region V), which covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin, and he’s moving the office from Chicago to Ohio. He’ll oversee SBA operations, eight district offices and federal small business assistance programs throughout the six-state region.

The SBA is the one federal organization that actually helps create jobs, providing technical assistance, training, loans and support to small businesses- which make up 99.7% of the employers out there.

When my veterans business group was working to help vetrepreneurs get going- we relied on the SBA office at WSU. Many of my clients got their financing through an SBA loan.

Hopefully, Mr. Bigwig will still be willing to come talk to a small businessman (me) about how the SBA is here to help us little guys get ahead and we’ll make another video.

Rob is a local product graduating from Kettering Fairmount High School, and then getting a degree in Political Science from Wright State and a JD from University of Dayton Law School. He’s on the Kettering City Council, and has practiced law and run political campaigns, including being the Ohio director for the Trump campaign. While at Wright State, Rob worked at the Dayton Daily News, and for a long time wrote a weekly editorial for the Dayton City Paper.

He also launched the Tea Party in the area, overthrew the local Republican Party via a planned precinct captain takeover campaign, and then stepped down when the old school monied elite withdrew support.

Knowing Rob and his dedication to small business and his deep commitment to public service, I’m pretty sure the SBA will be in good hands.

Here’s a great SBA fact sheet on what kind of impact the small business has on the national economy. And, if you listen to Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal like I do, you’ll know Kai’s saying that Wall Street and the Dow is not the economy, even though the people in Washington keep getting it confused with the real economic engine- the small businesses of America. I’m hoping Rob can get that message to the idiots in Congress who’ve sold out to corporate America.

Best of luck Rob. We’ll be rooting for you.
